Throughout her lifetime, our grandmother Jean Allison was dedicated to education and her treasured town in West Texas.
As a firm believer in the power of education, she went back to school after having five kids to get her bachelor’s degree, deciding that she wanted to give back to her community by becoming a teacher. She commenced her fifteen year career at Muleshoe High School, teaching American government, American history, world geography and economics.
She took tremendous pride in seeing her students succeed, pushing them to their fullest potential by modeling optimism and perseverance. Some of her favorite stories were about the debate team she led, where even shy or disenchanted students confronted their fears and obstacles. She believed in offering students many chances to succeed and worked hard to help students see the unique light that shined in each of them.
To continue her loving and determined legacy, the Jean Allison Memorial Scholarship exists and will support one student who has faced tremendous adversity but continues to persevere through it all toward a better future.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a graduate or recent student of Muleshoe High School who is either currently enrolled or planning to pursue a degree at a two or four-year college or a certification from a trade school.
The application deadline is Jun 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2021.
The scholarship award is $4,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 30, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
